DESPERATE. DISGUSTING. DUMPSTER DIVERS… the DEATH of me

Everyone likes a deal. Everyone likes a discount. Everyone LOVES knowing that you walked away with a purchase AND a little extra money left in your pocket….

HOWEVER…

THESE “DUMPSTER DIVERS” as I have so appropriately called them, need to GO LIVE SOMEWHERE ELSE… OR BETTER YET, CEASE EXISTENCE!!!! I see these people, ( who come OUT of the wood work, believe me!) come in HOARDS when there is sale, and go ABSOLUTELY CRAZY, DIVING THRU BINS of CHEAP-ASS merchandise…. i mean, LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS: they are DIGGING thru these Boxes and bins!!! DAMN, DESPERATE ANYONE?!?!?!

I’m not saying I hate these people for looking for a deal, or being “mean” to people who don’t buy expensive things, that is not the case here. THESE CREATURES are FIGHTING over getting that LAST  DOUBLE XL $5 T-SHIRT! They are PILING on MOUNDS of clothing they don;t want on their shoulders, while they RUMMAGE thru a BIN to find that OH SO PERFECT ITEM they CLEARLY are DYING to find! And they aren’t in for a quick browse…. THEY SPEND HOURS LOOKING THRU STUFF!

H.O.U.R.S!!!!!!

This ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTS ME. If you could see my face, and the expressions I made… i though I was going to get SARS and break out in HIVES.

I seriously thought I was going to DIE, or already was dead, and in HELL.

I mean, you don’t understand! this last picture, with the sweaty back of someone post- gym ( WHO F***** goes shopping after the gym when they’re all sweaty and smelly?? Trying things on? this is DISGUSTING!!)  this guy, is FISHING thru $5 tshirts for about half an hour (REALLY?!?!!?)  and asks: ” this one has a stain on it, can I get it cheaper?”

WWWWWWTTTTTTTTTTTTTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!

EVERY PROFANITY WORD THAT COMES TO MIND SPEWS THRU MY BRAIN… I almost turned around and Punched the guy. I’m actually getting sick reliving that moment….

ITS 5 F***ING DOLLARS!!! IF YOU HAVE TO ASK FOR A DISCOUNT ON THAT, THEN UR A F****ING LOSER!

GET OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PERFECTION…

Welcome to the Holy Grail of Fashion: This Gucci ad is IT.

I know, I know,… you’re expecting crazy photos of ugly outfits… but hey, once in a while I see something SO AMAZING, that I have to post GOOD THINGS TOO!

SO THIS IS IT: THIS IS WHAT EVERY WOMAN SHOULD LOOK LIKE WHEN THEY LEAVE THE HOUSE: to go shopping, run errands, lunch with friends, dinner, date, movies…. WHEREVER!!!!!!!

TAN! GREAT HAIR! AMAZING DRESS! GREAT LEGS! AND THE BEST DAMN HEELS OUT THERE!!!! DAMN!!!!!

This ad captures the lifestyle EVERY WOMAN SHOULD ASPIRE TO HAVE… because really: YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO BE HER!!!!!

So get to the gym, go to the tanning salon, go to ur hairdresser, and GO SHOPPING! Open up your wallet, and do some damage for yourself… YOU WILL THANK ME LATER!!!!! 🙂

Why do pants have belt loops? TO PUT UR BELT IN THEM!!!!

LISTEN UP! I’m all for styling, taking risks, expressing your “fashion style”.  BUT at least DO IT CORRECTLY!!!!!!

I see this all the time, girls, punk rockers, hipsters….  so I’m here to set you all straight. BELT LOOPS ARE FOR PUTTING YOUR BELT THRU THEM, AND HOLDING YOUR PANTS UP!

What’s the F****** point of having them slouched on your hips when there is NO PURPOSE!!!!!

Girls who wear flow-y dresses use wide belts to accentuate the waist… this is OK!!! people who wear JEANS  and have the belts just situated around their hips like a DEFLATED TIRE is NOT OK!

WHY??!?!?! this is a PERFECT “WHOLIEDTOYOU?” MOMENT!!! Who said this was ok???  ask yourself: WHATS THE F’ing point???

No Shoes, No Shirt, NO SERVICE!!!!!!!!

I’m gonna make this plain an’ simple, just like the title of this posting: NO SHOES, NO SHIRT, NO SERVICE!!!

WTF?!?!?!? i would use So many swear words right now because this DISGUSTS me to no end! WHO F****** does this?? Its one thing to be trying things on in a fitting room, and  if no mirrors provided in that fitting room, to step out and “observe” your outfit/get opinions from your friends. IT’S ANOTHER TO BE SHOPPING SHIRTLESS!!

Taking OFF your shirt in the middle of sales floor?? THATS WHY THERE ARE FITTING ROOMS STUPID!!!!! NO ONE WANTS TO SEE YOUR NAKED A** UGLY BODY!  GOD, this upsets me!!!!

I have seen this more frequently here in LA… for one, it’s not that hot… NO REASON FOR BEING SHIRTLESS. and two: WHO GOES IN A STORE SHIRTLESS, and SHOPS?!?!?!? WWWTTTTFFFFFFFFFFFFF??????

Put UR F******** clothes on, and get The F*** out!

and Ps: WHAT KIND OF STORES ALLOW THIS????? If.. no, WHEN I own my store, a shirtless person won’t even be ALLOWED TO STEP ONE FOOT in my doorway…. and if they’re IN my store shirtless, its because its BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, and I’m doing a FITTING… WITH an A-List PERSON!!!

Introducing: Tweedle Dee and Tweedle DUMB…

Now I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure we can all agree: dressing in matching outfits is a little juvenile. Who does that??? I think twins under the age of 5 look adorable…THATS IT. Unless it is for a runway show finale where all the models look like an army of Fashion Robots wearing the designers “concept look”. HOWEVER, IT DOESNT LOOK CUTE WHEN UR OLD ENOUGH TO BE IN A BAR!!!!

The 2 in the flannel, u guys missed out: there WAS actually a 3rd!!!! So that would actually make them Tweedle Dee, Dumb, and Dumber… Sure: maybe the originall went to a “Cowboy themed flannel party”, but somehow, I HIGHLY DOUBT IT. This is not a cute look, it is not COOL to DRESS THE SAME!!

When I lived with my friend, we always borrowed clothes, mixed and matched his or my pieces to create outfits, but we NEVER WORE THE SAME THING OUT! We were very close, to the fact we even thought alike: we would both go in our rooms, spend what seemed like hours trying on outfits, and come out in the hallway, only to find us BOTH wearing a SAME LOOK! (ie: black t shirt with dark blue jeans, white v neck with black jeans, both deciding to wear a hat…u get the picture). HOWEVER, we would NEVER leave the house KNOWING we looked alike…. ITS TACKY AND STUPID. You’re not getting the individual attention you want… yes people will look at you, but only be thinking, “God, what r they wearing?”

The second picture with the matching shorts… (siiiiigh)…. I actually witnessed coming into a store, looked around for about 20 min, and, when looking at shorts, REALIZED THEY WERE WEARING THE SAME SHORTS….WTF?!??HOW DO YOU JUST REALIZE THIS?? I noticed the moment I saw them!!! One guy said to the other, ” oh look, we’re wearing the same shorts”, and the other replied,” oh no way, I didn’t even notice. That’s funny!”.

IT IS NOT FUNNY. IT IS STUPID. In fact, YOU’RE BOTH STUPID! Sometimes I can’t believe people are so blind… If I went to go shopping with a friend wearing THE SAME thing as me, I would make them change, or I would change.

IS THIS A NEW FAD?? This morning, I saw 2 attractive girls leaving the gym, BOTH wearing Turquoise Nike workout tanks, not identical style, but same color, and both black running shorts… REALLY????!!? they BOTH have such limited workout wear that they ONLY HAD MATCHING OUTFITS TO WEAR…?

SIIIIIIGGGGHHHHHHH….. Thankfully I didn’t have my camera, otherwise me being upset seeing this STUPIDNESS would have probably resulted in me going off on them…

“WATER SHOES” R 4 AMPHIBIANS!!!

GOD, PLEASE SAVE ME FROM THESE!!!!!

So, I keep seeing these UGLY A** things on people, IN PUBLIC, in normal daytime, on the STREETS OF LA. WTF??? This is a DEFINITE “WHOLIEDTOYOU” MOMENT: IT IS NOT OKAY TO WEAR THESE IN PUBLIC! IN A CITY SETTING!!!!

THEY DON’T LOOK COOL, THEY ARE NOT A NEW ‘TREND’, and MOST IMPORTANTLY: ARE NOT MEANT FOR U TO BE WEARING EVERYDAY- UNLESS UR DOING SOMETHING BY THE WATER OR CLIMBING SOME BOULDER!!!(monkey freaks)

We all know i LOATHE feet, they disgust me, so to have your smelly-a** toes in view of the public eye all “webbed out” like a frog.. it just makes my stomach churn, and a look of DISGUST creeps on my face… and believe me, its an obvious one too, I will NOT hide my feelings on these GROSS things.

IF YOU’RE WEARING THESE OUT AND ABOUT RUNNING YOUR ERRANDS: YOU LOOK STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, for “journalistic” reasons, I looked up these “beauties” (GAG).. and I found this Winning Photo, and THIS IS WHAT THEY SAY:

“At home in the water or in chillier conditions, the men’s Vibram FiveFingers Flow multisport shoes offer the freedom of bare feet with the grip and protection of a Vibram sole.”

AND MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE PART:

“Recommended for cold weather running, trekking, bouldering, water sports and canyoneering”

SEE THAT YOU FREAKS??!?!?!? NOWHERE DOES IT SAY: FOR GROCERY SHOPPING, GOING TO THE BANK, GOING TO THE MALL, or an other NORMAL day to day errand. UNLESS YOU LIVE IN A RIVER, ON A LAKE, OR SOME BFE PLACE LIKE COLORADO, then STOP WEARING THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DRESSING ROOM ETIQUETTE = PICK UP UR S***!

First off: what kind of parents did you not have?? Did you not clean your room? And even if you had a housekeeper everyday of your life; if you are old enough to shop, then you’re old enough to know better!!!!!!

Most people, for their first job, go 2 different directions: retail, or waiting (tables). After a couple months, and, if they stay, realize the hard work and tolerance you have to put up with in their job. Dealing with rude people and attitudes makes you realize that when YOU’RE on the other side of the picture, to me a little more mindful.  Being in the clothing industry myself, and 13 years of it, makes me understand the importance of an educated and mindful shopper.

When I bring clothing into a fitting room, I try on one thing at a time, unless its a complete outfit choosing. When I’m finished trying on a piece, I PUT IT BACK ON THE HANGER. I don’t want to be in the presence of sloppiness, stepping on clothes as I’m trying them on…. would I want to buy a shirt I knew had been on the ground, stepped on by shoes and dirty, smelly feet by some SLOB who doesn’t have a respect for the garment, or other people? NO!!! When I am finished trying on what I bring IN the fitting room, I bring OUT of the fitting room, and hand back to the salesperson, or “go-back rack” that is OH SO CLEVERLY LEFT THERE FOR A PURPOSE!! Now, if you ARE being helped one-on-one with a sales associate, and they’re bringing you things to try, options, etc…. then it is OKAY to leave them in the fitting room when done.

Just DON’T leave NEW clothes that aren’t yours on the FLOOR…  have some respect for the product, (what if those were YOUR designs?), have some respect for the salesperson (what if YOU had to clean up after people all day?), and most importantly: HAVE RESPECT FOR YOURSELF… I mean: Do YOU like knowing you’re a DISRESPECTFUL SLOB??
